Crosley 58TK "Pixie" (1948)


Crosley 58TK "Pixie" (1948)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Crosley's 1948 Model 58TK will not take up much room as you can see by the adjacent ruler. Trapezoidal shape, rounded corners, circular dial, and a gold woven grille cloth behind grille bars give this little gem character, and it's been one of my favorite "pixies." This one was well cared for over the decades, and after a careful detailing, it's looking much like it did new and has beautiful marbling in its Bakelite cabinet. Controls are simple Volume and Tuning on this five-tube set, and has been recently restored electronically. The Bakelite cabinet is free of nicks, cracks, or repairs, and displays beautifully as seen in photos. Sorry for some reflections and shadows, but cabinet has no flaws. The dial scale has excellent graphics and numerals as seen in photos, and the dial pointer rotates smoothly around it. Crosley did not outfit this model with a lighted dial. Controls work smoothly as they should, and this five-tube set receives all my local AM stations using its internal loop antenna, delivering a pleasant tone from the original speaker. Radio has its original knobs, grille cloth, and backboard, etc., as well the factory sticker on the bottom side.
